Leprechaun Traps and Visit

Just before Spring Break started, we celebrated St. Patrick's Day by having the children create leprechaun traps for homework. On Friday morning, each student had the opportunity to explain his/her trap and just how it was going to work. While the children were at lunch, that tricky leprechaun entered our classroom and went crazy tipping over chairs, dumping crayons and leaving his footprints across tables and out the window (which was found open so we know how he escaped.) When the students came back from lunch, they were shocked at the condition of the classroom and wanted to get that leprechaun...it was a day they will remember for a long time!!

Good thing the leprechaun just made a visit and didn't stay. Based on the mess he made, he seems like a handful!

I'm so impressed with everyone's creativity, even the Leprechaun's!

Such a fun experience for Callie!! Also turned into a great learning opportunity for she and I together as we researched the origin of the day and the many legends surrounding it!
